The world's beauty is a swirl of color,
But in the flower's center is bright stillness.
" In life, attractions are endless. We should not do more than we need to satisfy ourselves. To plunge further is foolhardy. Remember to withdraw and look within. Lingering on the outside of our souls, there is shimmering beauty and fantastic movement. It is only when we go to the center of our souls that we are at the still-point of existence. Then all is brightness, energy condensed, unbearably strong and powerful, yet absorbed in supreme quietude."
